Historical Traveler Reviews Daytona Beach Regency
Loved it & can't wait to go back
We drove to Fl. straight through from Boston with 2 kids. "Not intended" Although, excited to go to Disney we went straight through. Since we arrived a day earlier and couldn't check-in to the home we rented in Disney. We wanted to check out Daytona for the night/day. We stayed here and the manager greeted us with the BEST professionalism. It was late and we just wanted to eat something and go to bed. He recommened take-out that delivered quick and had a port-a-crib send to the room before we even unloaded the van. Gave us a late check out and let us stay and use the amenities for the kids to see the beach the following day. We ended up with an absolute beautiful ocean view. The suite was very nice. Yes, the livingroom could probably use some updating buth the rest of the suite was beautiful. I have NEVER had such POLITE, WELCOMING, HELPFUL staff. We cannot wait to go back again.
I agree - where were the 5 stars
I wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton given it was in Daytona Beach, but I was disappointed nevertheless. The 2 bedroom layout was spacious and the bathrooms were quite nice, but the hotel has seen better days (mgmt says they are indeed renovating sometime in the future). The carpet was stained and musty (never got rid of the odor in 5 days), the sofa bed mattress seemed like it was 1/4 inch thick. There was kiddy slime all over the sliding door which was never cleaned and bird droppings freeze dried on the balcony. A dirty kitchen towel was left on the armchair. My husband was greeting by a cockroach in the kitchen the first morning - yuck! A laminated card says they only clean the rooms thoroughly once a week (the beds were made everyday) and they ask you to put your trash out in the hall by 10:30 AM each day ifyou want it emptied???? Also, watch out -- the orientation of the hotel relative to the beach means that most of the rooms have only a tangential view of the water. If you're unlucky, you'll get on the side of the hotel furthest from the beach and closest to North Atlantic Avenue, which is a major thoroughfare and noisy at night with kids in the street drunk and screaming.
Ok, but where are the 5-stars?
Just returned from a short stay in Daytona Beach at what was a 5-start timeshare resort (turns out the rating was in 2002). The only amenities here were the very attentive staff & the quiet of the hotel. We did have a partial ocean view which was nice. The poolside tiki bar was not in use, though there was an indoor lanai lounge just off the pool area.
No onsite restaurants or cafe's, no room service, just a "good morning coffee & juice area" & some vending machines right off the lobby. We helped ourselves with our luggage & when we got to our room, it had not been entirely cleaned: food/crumbs in the microwave, counters that hadn't been wiped down, no dishtowel or dishwashing detergent available, a used bar of soap was in the shower. The livingroom carpet had some spots in front of the couch that were something sticky matted into the carpet & what appeared to be a cigarette or cigar burn. The railing out on our balcony was loose. We were hopeful that bedding & towels were fresh. It appears that the hotel will be undergoing renovations as there were schematics & color/fabric choices on the wall by the front desk dated 2/04 which might just make it the resort it appears to be on the website. The hotel was quiet despite the fact it sits right on the very busy main strip along the ocean thru Daytona Beach. It you want a quieter, less busy area, try Daytona Beach Shores at the other end of Atlantic Ave. This was not a bad place to stay if you don't expect a 5-star resort/timeshare.
Great Place to Stay!
My husband and I stayed at the Daytona Beach Regency during Biketoberfest. We priced MANY hotels/condos during this time period and most were extremely overpriced due to it being an event week. The DBR was reasonably priced and absolutely FABULOUS! The room was spacious and included a full kitchen, large bath and garden tub. We had a view of the city and the ocean from our BR and LR. We could access the balcony from both as well. It was also very clean (something that is very important to us). We would highly recommend this condo to anyone!
It competes with many of the much higher priced hotels.
Fabulous Summer Vacation as Always!
Beautiful weather, fantastic condo - always clean, well kept, and courteous staff. Plenty to do, close enough to the Boardwalk to be "in the action", but not very noisy. Easy walking distance to everything!Definitely the best place to stay in Daytona Beach!
Absolutely the BEST!
We have owned a two bedroom unit at the Regency for 6 years, and have always found that it it to be the best in Daytona Beach!! We stayed at alot of hotels before purchasing, and nothing compares - check-in and check-out is always super easy, the rooms are always great, and ALL of the staff is coureous and prompt with service. The views from the ocean-front units are gorgeous, and the side units have good ocean views. It's always been a very calming and relaxing place to stay - we would love to live there year round!!

The staff was wonderful. Classy, spacious one bedroom looked newly decorated and clean. Plenty of parking in basement garage with security. The only reason I wouldn't give an excellent rating was the neighborhood appeared to be seedy. I liked the area toward Daytona Shores. Our room was on the north side and had an angled view of ocean which was fine. Opposite side is losing the ocean view by construction next door. Overall, I suspect it is one of the nicest along the beach.
We vacation in Daytona Beach every year. 2002 we booked a motel online and it was a disaster. We left after 25 minutes. We drove down Atlantic Ave and wandered in to The Regency and explained our situation to them and they were just super. They gave us a room for the same price as we had at the other place and made our vacation a great success. We now book in advanced so that we can stay at the Regency. Great people, great place to stay.
We recently stayed in Daytona Beach, and the Daytona Beach Regency is an awesome Resort. We enjoyed the large units, the planned activities, and the great staff. If you are going to Daytona Beach I strongly recommend the Daytona Beach Regency!
I recently stayed at the daytona beach regency in daytona beach florida, its had wonderful up to date rooms and very spacious. The secruity of the hotel is exellent prompt and friendly. Even the woman they use at the pool to play music gets you engergized for the day. Love the place and will stay again.

... took its toll around it. As it was raining we caught up on messages and the local news. There had been an Amtrak train run into a truck on the tracks in Florida. Madly, that could have been us on that train, as this was initially how we planned to get up to Daytona. Also a shooting in Daytona had happened at 2.30, and also a shooting yesterday at Millennia Mall which was near to Rodeway inn, the stop we could have got off the bus yesterday but chose to go to Florida Mall ...
Here we are, back in the US and walked off the ship with all our luggage. So long Caribbean Princess...it's been fun! We got a shuttle back to the hotel to pick up our truck and headed north.
We met up with cousin Sharon for breakfast just north of ...
... and thinking what a great view I would have if a boomer came to town, but it wasn't to be the case. I turned in about 1230.
I awoke at 0300 for no apparent reason, I'd like to think it was my lightning spidey senses, to find the eastern horizon covered with lightning flashes on the order of 2 or 3 a second. I shot some video of it with both my iPhone and HD camcorder, but sadly neither does the spectacle any ...
... short one, we had planned it that way so that we would have time in the afternoon to start the process of unloading the camper. The past 15 weeks have been wonderful, we have enjoyed every day of the trip, and we are looking forward to our next trip out west in 2 years.
This was our first day at the beach. We drove our Car to the beach and parked it right on the beach only a few yards from the sea. We spent almost the whole day in the atlantic ocean and liked it very much. Later in the early evening we drove to Orlando where we stay for two days at the Rosen Inn near Universal ...
